Jaguars place Justin Forsett, Stephen Burton on injured reserve

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The season is over for Forsett and Burton, who will presumably be replaced on the active roster by Delone Carter and LaRoy Reynolds.

Note: The article originally named Stephen Williams as the receiver placed on injured reserve. Williams was placed on the list in November. Wide receiver Stephen Burton was placed on the injured reserve on Monday.

The 2013 season is over for running back Justin Forsett and wide receiver Stephen Burton, as the Jaguars placed both players on the injured reserve on Monday.

Forsett, 28, suffered a foot injury in Week 12 and did not return from the injury before his season was officially ended on Monday. In his first season with the Jaguars, Forsett played in nine games but tallied just 31 yards rushing on six carries and 82 receiving yards on 15 receptions.

With the emergence of Jordan Todman as a spell-back for Maurice Jones-Drew, an increased role likely on the way Denard Robinson and the possible addition of another back in the offseason, it wouldn't at all be surprising if Forsett didn't reach the latter half of the two-year, $2 million deal he signed with the Jaguars in March.

Burton, 23, was claimed by the Jaguars in September after he was released by the Minnesota Vikings in final cuts. In four games and two starts for the Jaguars, Burton tallied eight receptions for 76 yards, but suffered multiple concussions that eventually ended his season.

One of the two roster spots was filled by the addition of veteran running back Delone Carter, while the other will likely be saved for the addition of linebacker LaRoy Reynolds who is free to return from a four-game suspension he received after Week 10.

The Jaguars also tweaked their practice squad on Monday, adding wide receiver Chad Bumphis to the group and waiving wide receiver Marcus Jackson. Bumphis was signed by the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent and spent some time on the Denver Broncos practice squad earlier in the year.
